Set in the city of Montreal in the spring of 1966, 16-year-old Jean Corbo is torn between two loyalties. Born to a Canadian mother and an Italian immigrant father, he lives in the suburb of the Town of Mount Royal. When his brother gets involved with a separatist political party, Jean starts to grow aware of the realities of life for Quebec’s francophones. After making friends with Julie and François, he meets members of an underground violent revolutionary group, the FLQ, the Front de libération du Québec.. On July 14, the group assigns him a task: planting a bomb in the Dominion Textile factory. Corbo, inspired by a true story, is a gripping chronicle of the origins of the FLQ in the decade preceding the 1970 October Crisis.
